Sample Footage

We recorded a sample version of a scene which will be featured in our music video for our media coursework. Unfortunatley most of the footage was unusable due to the Macs at school not reading the footage properly and causing huge pauses. However with it only being sample footage we gathered all we could and assembled it together to end up with this. We did not need the actual cast/props/clothing for this task because it was just to give a sense of what will be expected to happen in the video.

Facebook and Twitter

I created a Facebook fan page for Swillob Productions which will contain all the recent updates on the coursework as well as any feedback needed. We can also arrange events for filming which will be published on the fan page so everyone will know what time to meet and when! You can see the fan page here.
I also created a Twitter page for very much the same reason as the Facebook page. I have linked both of the accounts together so everything should be posted on both for both social networking sites. You can follow Swillob Productions here.

Swillob Productions

Hello and welcome to Swillob Productions new blog!

Our brief for this course is to: form a group of 2/3 and we will produce a portfolio of productions: a music video as the main text, a digipak cover for the music video/artist and a magazine ad for the digipak. We will be recording the footage using the HD digital camcorders and use FinalCut Express to edit the footage. The ideal length will be between 2 and 4 mins but could be adapted. We don't have to keep to the typical codes and conventions of a music video however we must show we know the codes and conventions!

Swillob Productions consists of:

Sam Pollock
Rob Shaw
Will Spivey
